NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Chiefs punch third straight Finals ticket

Grand slam-seeking Arellano University secured the first championship seat after an emphatic sweep of San Beda University, 25-18, 25-21, 25-23, Tuesday in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball Final Four at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Regine Arocha powered the Lady Chiefs’s comeback from a five-point deficit in the third set. Down 15-20 in the frame, Arocha sparked Arellano U’s 6-0 fight back to take a 21-20 lead. San Beda countered to take a 23-22 lead off Sattriani Espiritu’s quick attack. Arocha answered with an off the block kill followed by a cross court hit by Alyana San Gregorio before sophomore Necole Ebuen sealed the win with an off speed attack to boot out last year’s runner-up and the same team that denied Arellano U an outright Finals berth last week at the end of the elimination round.       The Lady Chiefs erased a 15-19 deficit in the second frame with a 5-1 scoring spurt to take the helm, 21-20. San Beda tied it at 21 before Arocha sparked a closing 4-0 barrage she capped with a hit to seal the frame. Arellano U started the match slow but recovered their bearing just in time to capture the opening set.          Meanwhile, fourth seed Emilio Aguinaldo College survived the first stage of the men’s stepladder semifinals after outlasting last year’s runner-up Arellano U, 24-26, 8-25, 25-20, 25-18, 21-19. Joshua Ramilo pounded 21 attacks in his 23-point explosion while Joshua Mina had 20 markers for the Generals, who will take on College of St. Benilde in another knockout match on Tuesday for the right to face outright finalist defending champion University of Perpetual Help. Aeron Daduya and Ralph Pitogo posted 10 points each for EAC. Vincent Tan and Christian Segovia finished with 17 and 15 points, respectively, for the Chiefs. In the juniors’ division, Letran crushed EAC, 29-27, 25-16, 19-25, 25-21, to advance in the second phase of the knockout stepladder semis. The Squires will face Lyceum of the Philippines University on Tuesday. Already waiting in the best-of-three Finals is defending champion Perpetual.          --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP: Adamson scores local blue-chip recruit in 6-5 Aaron Fermin

Aaron Fermin missed out on back-to-back MVPs as his team failed to make the Final Four in his last two years in the NCAA Juniors. Now, the 6-foot-5 big man will be joining an Adamson University side that is locked into contention for the playoffs for the foreseeable future. “Sa Adamson na po ako,” he said. Fermin is the Soaring Falcons’ first big get from the local high school ranks as the likes of Jerrick Ahanmisi and Sean Manganti were recruits from the US. In the 18-year-old’s final season for Arellano High School, he averaged 15.6 points, 16.2 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks. He topped the MVP leaderboard, but did not win the award because they did not advance to the Final Four. That was also the same story in 2017 as he was, head and shoulders, the top individual player in the tournament, showcasing both the physical and mental tools to make an impact on either end. Because the Braves did not make the playoffs, however, he also did not take home the trophy. Now, Fermin will be getting together with sniper Ahanmisi, versatile Simon Camacho, heady Jerom Lastimosa, and steady Koko Pingoy for an Adamson side coming off its best finish in the Franz Pumaren era. Alongside all that young talent, the Nueva Ecija native said learning under coach Franz was the clincher for his commitment to the blue and white. “Siyempre po, pinili ko rito kasi marami akong matututunan kay coach Franz,” he said. Securing the services of Fermin is a big-time beginning to the fresh two-year contract extension Pumaren had just signed last Friday. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

La Salle still spotless in Philippine Baseball League

Coming off an 11-8 win over IPPC a day ago, the De La Salle Green Batters heated up at the right time before romping the UP Fighting Maroons in just seven innings, 18-8, last Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium. With the win, the Green Batters are just one win away from an elimination round sweep in the Philippine Baseball League. In addition, La Salle clinched the top seed in the semifinals. But for long-time La Salle head coach Joseph Orillana, he was just glad as the Green Batters stepped up after reigning UAAP Athlete of the Year Kiko Gesmundo suffered a shoulder injury. "Masaya ako para sa team. Sabi ko sa kanila, kahit wala si Kiko, kailangan nila mag-step up. Hindi naman puwede na aasa lang kami sa seniors. Kanila na ito e," said Orillana as Gesmundo's first inning dive resulted to a shoulder sprain. The Fighting Maroons, who are coming off their first win of the season last Saturday, were able to keep pace with the league-leaders -- even picking up a 5-4 lead in the fifth inning. Errors, though, plagued UP at the bottom end of the inning while a 2-RBI single by left baseman Paolo Casas served as the go-ahead run. It did not stop there as the Green Batters, who were already up 11-8 entering the seventh inning, punch in seven more runs - capped by Mark Tuballas' errand pitch that hit Diego Lozano with the bases loaded that resulted to the walk-off stoppage. Tuwi Park was once again spectacular for La Salle, going 3-of-4 at-bat with five RBIs. Anton Acuna and Casas had three and two RBIs, respectively. Graduating infielder Boo Borandiaran earned the win for La Salle, pitching the last two innings -- fanning two batters. "Hopefully, sa UAAP magamit namin siya as pitcher," said Orillana as Barandiaran rarely pitched after his sophomore year. "Pinag-fofocus namin siya sa second [base], may times this season na magiging reliever siya. Hindi namin siya binibigla kasi galing siya sa injury." Earlier in the day, the Ateneo Blue Eagles snapped their two-game skid after escaping the UST Golden Sox, 13-12. Gino Tantuico connected on the first home run of the tournament during the first inning. In the last game of the triple-header, the Adamson Soaring Falcons kept their semis hopes alive after blasting the NU Bulldogs in seven innings, 19-3. Adamson will have to await the results of the games on Saturday, January 26 to see if it makes the Final Four......»»

ATIN TO: Desiderio opens first-ever business in Fairview

Though he was not able to achieve his goal of giving UP a championship, Paul Desiderio was still able to fulfill his promise. With this, Chooks-to-Go still awarded Desiderio his very own branch that will be with him for the rest of his life. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held after the taping of Desiderio's Maalaala Mo Kaya episode which aired on ABS-CBN on Saturday. "Sa tuwa ko at in behalf of the UP community, maluwag sa loob ko na ibigay kay Paul ang Chooks-to-Go store na ito," said Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. president Ronald Mascariñas. "Bukod sa kikitain niya sa PBA, ngayon may dagdag pa na puhunan ang kanyang pamilya." "Hindi ko ito ine-expect kasi ang sabi nila, magkaka-store ako kapag nanalo kami ng championship," expressed Desiderio. "Laking pasasalamat ko kay Boss Ronald at sa Chooks-to-Go dahil magiging malaking tulong ito sa family ko." Prior to the UAAP Season 81 Men's Basketball Finals, Mascariñas, who is an alumnus of University of the Philippines-Los Banos, dangled a Chooks-to-Go branch to Desiderio if he was to be able to lead the UP Fighting Maroons past the Ateneo Blue Eagles. Unfortunately for Desiderio, the Fighting Maroons were swept in the Finals. Still, Desiderio's journey from Liloan, Cebu to Diliman is a success story that continues to serve as an inspiration, not just to Iskos and Iskas, but also to every Filipino. "Nakita namin yung pangarap ni Paul sa basketball. Among the players, nakita namin na siya yung mas nangangailangan. Kaya kahit wala na yung support namin sa team, we continued supporting Paul," the sports patron added. "Nakita niyo naman nung Finals, hindi siya nag-give up. Lumaban siya para sa UP. And we hope that he can still continue to inspire others, especially the youth, even if he is in the pros." Desiderio chose an existing store in Fairview as it is near UP. "Hindi lang para sa akin itong store na ito, para ito sa UP. Atin 'to!" declared Desiderio......»»

UAAP Season 81: Board approves shift in volleyball individual awards

The UAAP Board has approved the use of the FIVB individual awards format for Season 81. Board member Rod Roque of University of the East confirmed the development in a text message to ABS-CBN Sports Thursday. “We will be following the FIVB on the giving of individual awards, by position already no longer by skills,” said Roque, who added that the decision was unanimous. The UAAP Board held a two-day meeting to tackle about the rules and regulations of second semester sports including volleyball. For the longest time, the UAAP has been feting players by skills: scorer, attacker, blocker, server, setter, digger, receiver and Most Valuable Player. Other local leagues like the NCAA, Philippine Superliga and Premier Volleyball League and UAAP high school have already adapted the FIVB’s by positon individual awards of best two outside hitters, two middle blockers, an opposite hitter, setter, libero and MVP. Schools have until January 28 to submit their team rosters. The Eligibility Committee will conduct screening on February 4 while the final approval of team rosters is set on Feb. 11.          --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
